I watched these movies with my father and brothers on Sunday afternoons. We were farmers and Sunday afternoons were our only day of rest and these films and other "old" movies were an anticipated treat. These DVD's are clear, complete and have scenes I do not recall from my childhood! Watching these movies floods my mind with wonderful memories of a simpler, less complicated life.

The TCM collection of the Johnny Weissmuller Tarzan movies gave me sharp, clear, excellent DVDs of some of my favorite childhood films. Even as an (alleged) adult I love watching them.

These are great! Johnny Weismuller is not a good actor, but he really doesnt have to be in these. This collection are by far the best of the
Tarzan films. Maureen O'sullivan is the best Jane. There are two more Weismuller/O'sullivan films that are not on here, and are also good. My wife doesnt like them, but I love them. They are well done, and fun to watch. I've seen each of them several times and never get tired of them. Ok, so he swings on vines that if you look closely, are like the ones trapeze artists use, and he swings freely without hitting anything, kills lions and hippos with his knife....but hey, he's Tarzan after all! They are fun and pretty well done actually. (and you've gotta love Maureen O'sullivan).

I grew up watching Tarzan movies every Sunday afternoon. Of course Johnny Weismuller is (in my opinion) the definitive Tarzan. I HIGHLY recommend this series to ANYONE, young or old. A fun ride for all.
Now, about Amazon. Excellent service. I have never (yet) had any complaints about either Amazon or any of the companies that I have purchased movies or music from. The speed with which they ship is "fantastically fast". I'm so glad that I found Amazon. Whenever I order something from them, I am almost 'giddy' with anticipation. The ONE time I had to return something (not the fault of either Amazon or the reseller) I received excellent service. Again, highest ratings to everyone. Thank you.

Great Tarzan Collection. I have always been a fan of the Weissmuller roll of Tarzan. And Maureen O'Sullivan as Jane, well there's no other like her. Worth having in any movie collection.

Johnny Weismuller was the best Tarzan ever! I have been waiting for these movies to become available on DVD at a decent price. The product is well put together technically. I plan to get all of his Tarzan movies on DVD and add them to my collection. I will enjoy these movies for a long time.

This was a fine addition to my library of classic films. I remember watching these movies on tv when I was a boy, and they brought back many memories. The contrast between movies of that era and today is huge as far as quality and special effects are concerned, but I would recommend this collection to any Tarzan fan, or anywone who is building a library of old adventure films.

I was a little worried about re-visiting these Tarzan films. I loved cathing them on our local UHF stations when I was a kid, but wasn't sure how well these films would hold up when viewed as an adult. I'm happy to say that Johnny Weissmuller is still the definitive Tarzan; Maureen O'Sullivan is the Jane I loved best and just a total knock-out in her jungle attire; and I still laugh at Cheeta's antics.

Tarzan the Ape Man - (1932) I was amazed watching this first film as it hits the ground running. We meet Jane Parker who is joining her father on an expedition in Africa looking for the fabled Elephant Graveyard. Accompanied by Holt, a great hunter the safari sets off into the jungle and meets a variety of dangers, from hostile natives to dangerous wildlife. The group soon stumble across Tarzan, and Tarzan immediately kidnaps Jane. Afraid at first, Jane soon begins to fall for Tarzan. All of the series trademarks are here; Tarzan's distinctive yell, Weissmuller's swimming, swining from vines...everything you could want in a Tarzan film.

Tarzan Escapes- (1936) The second film on the first disk skips ahead by a couple films. Two of Jane's relatives arrive and try to convince Jane to return to England. Jane must sign some documents regarding an inheritance she's received. Jane's relatives secretly hope that Jane will want to return and stay in England. Also on the safari is Captain Fry, who only wants to cage wild animals as zoo attractions, and he also hopes to capture Tarzan for display as well. Somewhat low budget entry as quite a few scenes are reused from earlier films, but a fun entry in the series. This film actually gave me nightmares when I was a kid! Wait until you see the evil native tribe's way of executing prisoners!!

Tarzan and His Mate - (1934) The first film on the second disk is the sequel to the first film in the series. Not sure why they are packaged this way, but it's fine. With this film the great hunter Holt returns to Tarzan's land. He's brought along a safari and business partner named Martin who hopes to relocate the elephant graveyard from the first film and to take away all of the ivory there. Holt is hoping to win Jane's affection and to take her back to England. Tarzan refuses to help the safari so Martin shoots an elephant so that they can track her to the elephant graveyard. Knowing that Tarzan will try to stop him, Martin comes up with a plan to kill the Lord of the Jungle.
***One thing to note with this film*** I've been re-watching these movies, and watching them with my kids. It should be noted that this film does contain quite a bit of nudity. When the safari first arrives, there are several topless natives seen at the dock, and about halfway through the film there is a scene where Jane goes for dip in the buff. The scene is done well, and while not done in an exploitive manner, it was kind of shock to see what would today be considered hard "R" rated nudity in a film from the 1930's.

Tarzan Finds a Son - (1939) - A plane flying over Tarzan's land crashes killing everyone on board except for a little baby. Cheeta rescues the baby from the wreckage and brings it home to Tarzan and Jane who decide to adopt the baby and name him Boy. Flash forward five years and a safari shows up looking for the people who perished in the plane crash. They secretly hope to find proof that everyone on board had died as they stand to inherit quite a fortune if no one survived. They soon learn that Boy is the only survivor of the crash, and they decide that since he is a minor, they can bring him back to England and take control of the inheritance as his guardians. They convince Jane that they only want what's best for Boy, and she agrees to help them return the child England despite Tarzan's protests.

Each film is a fun little escape. If you loved these films as a child, you will still enjoy them today. Highly recommended.
